Getting Started with Your Cannabis Business Plan
Step 1: Get Licensed by State
A cannabis license is required at the state level for business: with different licensing requirements for recreational and medical cannabis. It’s important to know which licenses you need: there are different required licenses for dispensaries, cultivators, manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, testing labs, delivery services.
Step 2: Set Up Operations
Your cannabis application is just the beginning. To begin operating your business, you’ll need to secure real estate, develop safety and security measures, build supply chain partners, and finalize branding and cannabis marketing strategies.
Step 3: Launch
Your application is approved and your operations are in place. It’s time to build your customer base, refine your services, and develop ongoing cannabis marketing and business development initiatives.
